Trump impeached for historic second time

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump was impeached by the U.S. House for a historic second time Wednesday, charged with “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly mob siege of the Capitol in a swift and stunning collapse of his final days in office.

In residential areas between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. on Sundays, and between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday, no one âshall make or permit the making of any noise or sound, which is plainly audible and which, by reason of volume, pitch, frequency, intensity, duration or nature annoys or disturbs the comfort, peace or health of a person of ordinary sensibilities.”

Ten Republicans fled Trump, joining Democrats who said he needed to be held accountable and warned ominously of a “clear and present danger” if Congress should leave him unchecked before Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration Jan. 20.

Trump is the only U.S. president to be twice impeached.

The Capitol insurrection stunned and angered lawmakers, who were sent scrambling for safety as the mob descended, and it revealed the fragility of the nation’s history of peaceful transfers of power. The riot also forced a reckoning among some Republicans, who have stood by Trump throughout his presidency and largely allowed him to spread false attacks against the integrity of the 2020 election.
